It’s the time of year when we get together for National Health Center Week, an annual occasion during which Community Health Centers (CHCs) across the U.S. celebrate the great strides they have made and continue to make for their communities. Join CHCs August 13-19, 2017! The theme this year, “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: The Key to Healthier Communities”, recognizes the important role CHCs have in building healthy communities. In addition to providing high-quality, accessible care to 25 million Americans, CHCs help power local economies like here in Colorado.
This year’s National Health Center Week will include focused themed days that will provide opportunities to showcase the services and programs available at CHCs. These events provide a great opportunity for job seekers and other health care professionals interested in community health to network, ask questions, and get a true sense of the “family” environment that CHCs cultivate among their staff and patients.
